I was thinking it was the 7th round when it turned around but wasn't sure if I was remembering correctly. I try to keep bias away when judging a fight and I felt Loma showed a chink in Teo's armor that Martin shined a bigger light on.
I don't want to completely shyt on Teo because he can improve but it is going to take some mental toughness and for him to realize that the jab is going to be crucial weapon for him
Nah fukk Teo.
Less pull ups, curls and grid iron in camp, throw 10,000 jabs going forwards, backwards, up, down, behind a guard etc.
Styles make fights, and he can still have success against small to medium sized fighters at 140 that can't box. But can you imagine him against Haney? He'd get trademarked worse than Kambosos got it. He isn't shyt against bigger 140'ers or 140'ers that can fight backwards like Martin etc.
I can't rememeber if it was you or @reservoirdogs
that highlighted Lomachenko inefficiency off the backfoot when compared to say a Martin off the back foot (let alone a Haney off the backfoot.) And that's a great point. Lomachenko being so anatomically bereft, he has to slip and set traps, wear them down psychologically, beat them with conditioning etc.
Lopez camp are going to pad the shyt out of his career from herein, if that's possible. He has a lot of issues at 140, a lot of issues. Imo he should go back to 135. At least he can bash people up easily down there.
